Songs to dedicate to kids?


I’m wondering if we could get a post where we all share some songs that we like to dedicate to our little ones! I’m not sure if anyone else does the same but I like to make a playlist of a bunch of different parent-child songs to sing to/makes me think of my son. I’m always looking for new ones to add :slightly_smiling_face:

Some of my favorites are…
Everything Changes - Sara Bareilles
You Are The Best Thing - Ray LaMontagne
Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You - Lauryn Hill
What A Wonderful World - Louis Armstrong

Awesome! This will come in handy with baby #4 due in December! I like to sing special songs to them while I’m rocking them to sleep and I need to find new ones for him. I have a Playlist on YouTube for me to sing to for our last little one. It has:
“Perfect” by Ed Sheeran
“You Are The Reason” by Callum Scott
“How Long Will I Love You” by Ellie Goulding
“Sanctuary” and “A Life That’s Good” from the Nashville soundtrack.

My older 2 are teens, their special songs were “You’ll Be In My Heart” by Phil Collins for my son and “Adrianna” by Vince Gill for my daughter.

One of my little’s favorites! From before she was even born!:heart::heart::heart:

Somewhere Over The Rainbow

I have a playlist of oldschool hip hop songs for my kid to listen to when she goes to bed. Does that count? Lol

When I was preggo with my son every time bruno mars’s song “just the way you are” came on he would go crazy in my stomach. When he was born that was one of the only things that would help soothe with. Now he is a huge bruno fan💙 And the of course the song you are my sunshine

Baby mine is for my older and you’ll be in my heart for my younger

A Million Dreams - from The Greatest Showman soundtrack. He loved it and squirmed around in utero to it … and any song from this movie calms him down instantly when he gets cranky. :blue_heart::blue_heart::blue_heart:

For my daughter it is Faith Hill’s “Wild One” as that fits my daughter to a T!!
